      Is anyone online ?

      ive got (text of my log file) :-

      Subject 1: ' Good MOrning mummy' - '[NZ]'

      Subject 2: ' Good MOrning mummy' - '[NZ]'

      That is in my log file -

      the [NZ] thing is $subj
      the Good MOrning mummy is $subject

      Now - as $subject does NOT contain [NZ]
      I want $subject to CHANGE to " [NZ] Good MOrning mummy " (no quotes)

      As the regex you quoted above DOES NOT work, Ive changed it to :-

      print "Subject 1: '$subject' - '$subj'\n\n";

      if ($subject !~ m/$subj/i){
      print "TEST 2 - $subj NOT included in $subject\n";

      $subject =~ s/^ +//;
      print "Subject 1A: '$subject' - '$subj'\n\n";
      $subject = "$subj $subject";
      print "Subject 1B: '$subject' - '$subj'\n\n";

      print "Subject 2: '$subject' - '$subj'\n\n";

      It clearly displays the two "Subject" prints - however does NOT print the
      'test' fields..

      Today, Ive tested it (at work - a few emails) & it puts '[NZ]' multiple
      times - one extra each time I reply to the message :-

      RULES :-

      1) If it doesnt containt "[NZ]" - add it to the front of the subject
      2) if it contains "[NZ]" - do nothing..

      pretty simple - & ive been doing regexes for a while
      However im totally bamboozled as to why this simple regex doesnt do what I
